The Los Angeles Southwest College Registered Nursing Program is a program that prepares students for an Associate of Science Degree with a major in Nursing.

The most qualified candidates are admitted at the start of the semester following the application deadline. In the case of more qualified applicants than the number of seats allocated for the semester the selection process is conducted by a lottery purpose.
Applicants accepted into the program are expected to attend a mandatory all day Nursing Orientation meeting.
